New 8-Inch Surface Tablet Coming this Summer? As Low as $249?

May 16, 2013 2 Comments

We are all aware that Microsoft will most likely launch new Surface tablets running Windows RT and Windows 8. Digitimes however is reporting that the Surface might have a little brother very soon. They state that Microsoft will be launching an 8-inch new Surface tablet and then developing a 10.x inch model later in the year.

The 8-inch Surface will use touch panels supplied by Samsung Electronics and Nvidia-developed processors, and Taiwan-based ODM Pegatron will be responsible for production, the sources said.

The new Surface RT is manufactured by Pegatron Technology, using Nvidia’s Tegra processor. However, because of the first-generation Surface RT’s weak sales, and fierce competition in the 7- to 8-inch tablet market, most market watchers are conservative about the second-generation Surface tablets’ performance

According to the reports, the new 8-inch Surface tablet will cost only $249 – $299. I will believe that when I see it but it would definitely give a much needed boost to the ecosystem.
